This restaurant offers gourmet dining at a not too expensive price. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the wine list and food offerings. The food was well-prepared - salad was crisp and not over-dressed; pasta dish was nice -- to overly sauce and pasta al dente as it should be. The service was a bit slow -- they had... More

Starting off I'd like to say that I've loved this restaurant for years, normally going on special occasions since it is a pricey night out. I was looking forward to be wined and dined along with my girlfriends who also LOVE this place. Going to Gabrieau's is believed to be an "experience", and that it certainly was. As a lady... More

The food at this restaurant is awesome. Portions tend to be small and pricy. The atmosphere is just ok.

After Convocation ceremonies at St. FX University, we went to Gabrieau's for a celebration diner. The food was excellent and the owner took the time away from the kitchen to visit with patrons on this special night. I highly recommend this establishment in Antigonish for your next dining experience.

Large menu for the size of the place and I'm sure there must be at least a few items that would suit anyone's tastes. Great value for the meals you receive. Large portions and good quality ingredients yet mid level pricing. You can't go wrong for the value. Friendly waiter who has been there since it opened just adds to... More

I have been going here for 15 years and still consider it fantastic. I have gone numerous times in the past month and the consistency of service, food, atmosphere and value is outstanding. What more can I say? Food has flair, the staff are excellent and friendly, the atmosphere is gorgeous. Perfect place for a date, business or just hanging... More

We did not have a reservation but we were early, 5pm. They weren't real welcoming but did give us a table. Food was very good but the service could have been better - I remember having to wait for our server to come back, had to ask for more water, had to wait to take care of our bill after... More

We stopped here last summer, on our way to Cape Breton, for a meal. The waiter who served us was rude and disinterested to the point of being ignorant. When my wife asked him to describe one dish, prior to ordering, he gave a flippant reply. At the end of the meal he didn't offer desert or coffee and when... More

Last night, my wife and I had dinner at Gabrieau's Bistro and while overall the experience was better than average, I thought that for a $160 bill it should have been better. I started the flash fried calamari with mango mayo and it was a real disappointment. I asked for it to be undercooked as squids get rubbery quickly is... More
